      To use our core service, the visualization of your sporting activities, you need to connect at least one of the two services: Strava or Garmin.

By means of the successfully established connection, you enable us to access your activity and account data from the respective service. We use this data (e.g. your user ID, activity information such as route length, speed, altitude, time, heart rate, watts, photos associated with the activity, and the route of the activity) to display your activities in our selection list and for the creation of your individualized visualizations. You can disconnect the respective service (Strava or Garmin) in your settings at any time or, in the case of a temporary Strava session, by logging out. Some of the third-party providers (e.g. Strava) allow you to create so-called "private zones" in which your exact position is hidden. Please note that not all third-party providers take this function into account when passing on your data to us, but pass on the unfiltered raw data. If you see your exact route within your "private zone" through our service, please contact the third party provider directly and ask them to not provide this data via their API in the future.
